Jack is Back! (Excerpt 1 from Belly of Brass)
He divided his attention between the hazardous road and the craft soaring into open view ahead. Sunlight glinted off what must have been glass shielding, presumably in front of the operators, for Jack could now see they were small machinesójust large enough to seat one or two men at the most. The glare of midafternoon reflected off what looked to be dual gun barrelsólarge ones at thatómounted under each wing. Without a pause in their motion toward him, they opened fire.
"Good God!" Jack shouted as he ducked his head.
Bullets hissed and struck the road in front of him. At least three or four rounds found purchase on the metal roof of his vehicle. Instinct took over and he veered into the woods, not caring if the cover was adequate or not. He couldn't outrun them on the road. He needed options.
Small saplings bowed under the onslaught of his wagon. He nearly slammed into a pine that was too large to yield, but veered left, just in time for the next volley fired from overhead. This time t

Wandering Jack - PART 5
"You won't find my source of power," said Jack. Ignoring the spinning thoughts in his sore head. "My homunculi are safe, away from both of us." His magically-created creatures were with Grif. He had no reason to believe otherwise, because he sensed they weren't destroyed. He had no grimoire, or book of spells, but no reason to tell his enemy that small detail either. His own mind had been all the inspiration his magic ever needed.
From the corner of the room, a child's voice shouted, "No!" Grif ran toward them. "Lucy, do it now!"
Before the boy could reach the banishing circle where Jack was imprisoned, one of The Green Lion's men grabbed him, sweeping him up in the air and covering his mouth with a black-gloved hand.
Jack crouched low, one knee hitting the floor harder than he had intended, which hurt. He didn't have the use of his hands, but he had no other choice. Channeling all the strength he possessed into the invisible spaces at four equidistant points around his body, he shoute

Wandering Jack - PART 4
They found me. They have you.
When Jack awoke, he was in an unfamiliar place. The light was dim and his eyes wouldn't quite focus. His cheek was pressed against a hard, grimy surface and one leg was pinned awkwardly beneath him. The heel of one boot dug into his opposite thigh, cutting off his circulation. He struggled to sit upright, and realized his hands were bound behind his back. He fell back down. The cords must have been very tight, and secured for quite some time, because he could feel nothing below his wrists. There was an excruciating pain in his head, worse than any hangover he'd ever experienced in his life, and he had accumulated quite the encyclopedia first-hand knowledge there. Flashes of unwanted memory came back, like bits of a fleeing nightmare. Being drug here, kicked, searched. It didn't seem quite real, but the pain in his chest and back was evidence enough. He let out a low moan, the sound echoed in a large space.
"Hush up," said a child's whispered voice.

You all inspire me. :)


It's been a while since I've picked up a real ink pen to draw on real paper. So much of what I do is digital these days. But this spring I got some bristol board and art markers and gave it another try. I'll leave it to you all to decide if my pen and inks are real art or not, but I'm sure having fun and that's what I need. Art and writing are my best weapons against Depression, so I keep following those muses when they will talk.

Oh, and I finally got one of those digital drawing tablets from Wacom and am in love with that thing! What took me so long to buy one, I don't know...

I've been away from DA for too long as well. It's wonderful to catch up on what you all have been doing! So many talented folks here. You inspire me!

Stay awesome!
